Looking at this place, Marlinspike Hall comes to mind.A marvel of architecture, the Hopetoun House was the residence of the Earl of Hopetoun. The interior of the house reflects the aristocratic taste of the early 18th century Europe. It is two storied house with the ceilings full of antique paintings. It has marvellous parklands and beautiful flower gardens.
The staffs of the house are very helpful to the tourists and they provide ample information to the visitors about the history and heritage of the house. The ground in front of the house organizes many stage performances which is good to see. Being situated at the centre of the town, it is well connected by bus and other transport services. The house is able to maintain its grandeur though decades with elegance and aristocracy.

Visited for the annual fireworks display. All quite enjoyable, but the chip van ran out of chips. The fireworks were out of time to the music and the egress from the house was a shambles.
Our daughter chose Hopetoun House as her wedding venue and what fabulous decision that proved to be! From the very first visit until the big day itself, Clare and her Events team, together with Michael and his catering team from Heritage Portfolio were all incomparable. Faultless, preparation and seamless, unflappable service throughout the day. Everything was quite simply.... perfect. Thank you , thank you, thank you!
This is a beautiful country house in an extrordinarily lovely location. The Festive Fair was good, with a varied range of stalls and venues. However the Afternoon High Tea was quite poor I am afraid. After a longish wait a pot of tea was served, which was cold before the food arrived. The food itself was average really. The service was below par albeit the service staff were pleasant enough. All just a bit too much for them I felt. No response from staff at my 'thank you' on exit. They were busy chatting to each other. Not my best experience and rather disappointing for my friend also.
I secretly love the history of this place. The beauty of the landscape. The lapping around the Firth of Forth. The secret archways the beautiful oldest tress I have seen. Visited Abercorn church and then the war memorial. It was a lovely graveyard. Open trees primed and pruned. The walled surround and the little coach house did chapel. There was considerable parking. Lots of rabbits hopping about and pheasants milling about though and hooting through the estate. Has a close population of some of the biggest raptors I have seen ever. They seem to be doing really well by living off the sea successfully.
A great day out for the family. Lots to see and do.
